Yesterday was Palm Sunday, the day of St Anne's Annual Meeting, and - of course - the London Marathon with large crowds, as usual, thronging Jamaica Rd (above) as the runners, thousands of them passed through Bermondsey in brilliant sunshine.
In church we prayed for them, but we also remembered the crowds who lined the streets of Jerusalem two thousand years ago. It was the beginning of a climactic week that changed the history of the world. It was the beginning of the week that we remember this week, and we call it Holy Week.
